My husband has supposedly been clean and sober for 2 months now, but money started disappearing from our checking account again 4 weeks ago. He always has an explanation--clothes for work (which I've never seen), owing money to others, gambling to try to make more money... On days he doesn't go to work, he is severely depressed and lays in bed or on the couch all day. If I try to get him up, it just turns into a big fight because he doesn't like "being told what to do." It wouldn't be such a big deal to wake up at some point if we didn't have a baby (our 3rd) on the way in 1 week. I am getting baby stuff ready, painting, house cleaned and ready all by myself most of the time (my in-laws are wonderful and they come over to help too), and it's killing me physically. Some weeks, he goes to AA meetings 5 nights, other weeks he'll only go once. I am parenting our daughters by myself, and trying to avoid outbursts from him in the meantime. I am so hurt by all of his lies and verbal abuse that I don't know if I want him there when I deliver this baby. I am so sad about this. It's a decision I know I may regret later, but I don't know if he will take away from the wonderful experience that the birth will be. I hide my feelings from our other two children who are young, but I know they see what goes on, and I know it's affecting them. What should I do? It's a lot harder to leave when I have 2 kids here and 1 on the way.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
